Meeting Coiste Chontae Liatroma 15 Nollaig 2017


There was resounding support for a changing of the competition structures across all levels at the meeting of Coiste Chontae Liatroma tonight. Almost all competitions from Senior to Underage are the subject of structural change. Headlining this mood for change is the fact the SFC and IFC Competitions will now be played at round robin stage in two groups of six teams as a motion from Mohill was successful. League semi-finals have been removed in league competitions in Division 1 and 2. No less important and perhaps most significant is that underage structures have received their most radical revamp ever as Leitrim looks to the future.

Senior & Intermediate Football Championships 2017

The following will be the new format for the 2017 Connacht Gold Senior and Fox Monumentals Intermediate Championships:

That the 12 competing teams be divided into two groups of six (A & B) numbered 1-6 in each group, each team having five group games. Random selection will be used with the first team drawn out going into Group A and the second team to be drawn out going into Group B etc.

The top four teams in each group would make up the eight teams contesting the quarter-finals with the bottom two teams in each group contesting the Relegation Semi Finals.

The draw for the Quarter Finals will be as follows:

Place    (Group)                                    Place    (Group)

1          (A)                   vs                     4          (B)

2          (A)                   vs                     3          (B)

1          (B)                   vs                     4          (A)

2          (B)                   vs                     3          (A)

The Semi Finals shall be an Open Draw.

The Relegation Semi-Finals would be as follows:

Place    (Group)                         Place    (Group)

5          (A)                   vs         6          (B)

6          (A)                   vs         5          (B)

Rule 6.24(4)(c) to apply in determining the final placings in the event of a tie at the conclusion of the league stage. 

Underage Competition Structures

The Underage Review Committee was successful inÓgaining very large support for the new structures proposed. Changes will see age grades moving from the more traditional age grades as underage and adult football are totally decoupled for 2017 with Under 18 grade removed and replaced by Under 17. Provision has been made in the games calendar for a much better spread of games and the number of games at each level has beenÓgreatly increased, in most cases almost doubled. It is planned to have all games played at 15 a side and 13 a side with official 11 a side and 9 a side competitions removed from the games calendar.
